How ridiculous would Palutena be in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate if all attacks generated massive beams of light like her up smash?

The Goddess of Light indeed...

Palutena from the Kid Icarus series is generally recognized as one of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate's strongest characters as far as competitive play is concerned. Apparently, Vishera Games didn't think Palutena was strong enough and decided to give her a substantial buff to her kit.

For those that don't know, Palutena's up smash currently has the greatest amount of vertical range out of any up smash in the game — sans Snake's projectile-based mortar up smash, of course.

Vishera Games decided to attach Palutena's up smash to almost every one of Palutena's attacks. Needless to say, Palutena's advantage state and overall power level skyrockets with this adjustment.

Although Palutena's up smash summons a beam of light vertically, Vishera Games has made it so that the beams of light will angle themselves based on which attack was used.

Palutena's down tilt in particular looks absolutely ridiculous since it travels well below the stage if Palutena uses it to edge guard opponents. Notably, those struck by the downward attack will be spiked to the bottom blast zone.

Being that Palutena is known as the "Goddess of Light" in the Kid Icarus series and is probably one of the strongest characters in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate in terms of canon power levels, this is probably a true representation of how Palutena would play if balance was thrown out the window.
